(IC) 4th Edition D&D game set in Sharn/Eberron
I've been itching to run a game set in Eberron, using 4th Edition D&D rules. At least initially I'd want to set it in Sharn. My approach to Sharn would be to take its size and population literally, as in this analysis: https://www.enworld.org/thread...l-ghost-town.111530/

I would concentrate the population into closely knit communities, with a handful of city-sized (25,000 people) communities another handful of "towns" (10,000 people) and an unknown-but-not-enormous number of semi-permanent "villages" (1000 people), spread throughout. Between these regions of relative civilization would be areas claimed by gangs, cults, and infestations of monsters, as well places that have just been forgotten or lost (sometimes on purpose) in the huge volume of the city. In other words, Sharn would be a points-of-light setting inside a points-of-light setting, and ripe for exploration and intrigue and well as plenty of combat.

If things go well, the game could move out into wider Khorvaire and other locales.

There'd be no set campaign, probably just a focus on the PCs moving up in the world by building their reputations and abilities.

Yo! I'd also be interested in trying this out; I saw your post on the LFG for the 4e server and was piqued. Any house rules I should know about, and, as nadimsuer said, anything you -don't- want to see?

It's rare to find a 4E game nowadays. I'd give a shot for sure.

Certainly love Eberron (or the idea of it) - too many games I've joined set in Eberron die quick deaths unfortunately.

Haven't played 4E in ages, but that could be fun.

I'll probably be interested. Going for any particular tone?  And are you restricting any content as not being setting appropriate, or can players be whatever?

That sounds pretty awesome. It's good to see 4e getting less hate these hate. And Sharn was always a cool setting to me.

Thanks for the interest. I'll get something set up. Yes, there are going to some house rules and preferences, but I'll make those clear in the game thread, and people can review them there before requesting to join.

Here's a link to the Players Wanted post, which has a link to the game itself.

Thanks for the interest!
